For many, the creepiest part of shopping or visiting public places is the fear of carrying back home the nasty germs clinging on the handrails of escalators and moving walkways. LG’s 'Handrail UV LED Sterilizer' addresses this problem by wiping out 99.99 percent of microbes with continuing blasts of ultraviolet germicidal irradiation.

The sterilizer, just half the size of a piece of A4 paper, easily hooks to the escalators disinfecting the handrails as they operate, writes E&T.

The sterilizer, already approved by regulators in the European Union and South Korea, needs no wiring as it draws power from the mechanical energy of a moving escalator, notes Engadget
